Mission of Nazaré Uniluz
Our mission is the development of an integral human being, conscious of all aspects of his or her own being and interconnectedness with the Totality of Life, inspired by the rediscovery and practice of spiritual and universal values in daily living, by means of co-creative cooperation and selfless service.
PrinciplesNazaré Uniluz cultivates the freedom of being and is not associated to philosophical or religious organizations. In our approach to education, we are committed to cultivating the freedom of being, and for that reason, we guide our activities and decisions by 12 universal principles.
Principles to facilitate attunement within oneself:
Meditation: moments of quietness in the mind and of focusing in the inner life to deepen the perception of one’s own consciousness content.
Silence: moments to be in solitude and to be free to connect with oneself and the whole. A subtle and permanent context that supports one’s inner search, a practice that does not imply mutism.
Mindfulness: keeping the mind aware and fulfilled with the present moment, observing oneself and the relationship with others and with the whole.
Three daily meditations are invitations to keep practicing these principles, as well as keeping the silence of words and noises from 10 pm to 8 am the following day.
Principles that facilitate relationships within the group and with the institution itself:
Rhythm: the program offers moments of group interaction, of quietness and solitude to create inner balance and harmony.
Ceremonial order: this implies activities and behavior with reverence for the cyclic nature of life and the recognition of the beginning and ending of every proposed activity in the campus.
Loving care: as we recognize the sacred nature of all our relationships, we care about the group, nature, our shared space and oneself.
Sharing: moments to pause, to reflect and to express by means of words or shared silence what we have experienced in the campus; a time to listen to each other and to share our perceptions.
We can perceive the practice of these principles in the loving care about our shared space and everyone in it; such a practice reminds us of the richness and beauty of supporting each other in a group experience.
Principles that promote the relationship between the individual and the whole:
Selfless service: to practice impersonal and voluntary service for the good of the whole. Love in action is the experience that promotes continual learning and reveals this soul’s natural gift within oneself.
Sustainable communication: it means a constant and conscious exercise to communicate clearly and respectfully with oneself and others.
Group leadership: a capacity that comes with the maturing of the human soul in response to its natural need to serve, care lovingly and organize actions and processes. It happens naturally and serves the good of the whole.
Care with Nature: the act of recognizing and responding to social and environmental needs. We are integral parts of Nature and responsible for our actions towards it.
Simplicity: when we become receptive to our soul’s guidance, life becomes simple, clear and free from what is superfluous.
We observe and cultivate these principles regarding the care with the abundant nature that surrounds the campus, the clear and loving communication among all of us as we perform all our activities, so that everyone is invited to engage in an experience of self-knowledge and inner-knowing, throughout our staying in the campus
